    What theme are you using? If child theme of bp-default, copy over footer.php of bp-default theme into your child theme folder. Open it up and delete
    `

    “<?php printf( __( 'Proudly powered by WordPress and BuddyPress.’, ‘buddypress’ ), ‘http://wordpress.org’, ‘http://buddypress.org’ ) ?>“

    Create a child theme of the BuddyPress Default theme.

    Then, copy over /plugins/buddypress/bp-themes/bp-default/footer.php to your new child theme, open up footer.php, then read this:

    What BP-compatible theme are you using? If you’re using the bp-default theme, you should not make changes directly on that theme because it will be overwritten when you upgrade BP plugin. You need to create a child theme instead.

    Copying footer.php from bp-default theme into child theme folder per tutorial (if you want to use bp-default theme and customize it) and upload to server is just like copying over some a file from one folder to another in your computer then FTP/cpanel upload to server.

    Hello Ray and Mercime. Thank you for your help. I did what i was supposed to do and i got a message to the tune ” you cannot edit this file”. WHen transfering footer to be put inside the child theme folder sitting along side the style.css. Please help.

    At this time, WP prevents theme editor for BP-default child themes. So you should download bp-default theme’s footer.php to your computer and edit it there. After you edit and save footer.php, upload it to your server via FTP/cpanel, etc. wp-content/themes/name-of-your-child-theme-folder/
